get your done pair during the pandemic got complicated, right? After all, by the safety standards established by the World Health Organization (WHO) and other health authorities, it is not allowed to agglomerate. With this, dating apps like Tinder have made it possible for users in the United Kingdom who have been vaccinated to have the right to the “vaccinated” sticker on their profile photo and also bonuses on the platforms as an immunization incentive in the country.
Apps such as Tinder, Match, Hinge, Bumble, Badoo, Plenty of Fish, OurTime and Muzmatch have entered the program in partnership with the British government. In this context, 59% of the country's 67 million inhabitants have already been vaccinated.
However, there is no way to check whether the people who claimed to have been vaccinated were actually immunized. As a result, some apps are including incentives for those who say they have been vaccinated, free credits or access to premium features like profile enhancement, virtual rose donation and “super likes”.
In addition, Bumble will allow its members to share preferences about social detachment, wearing masks and whether users feel comfortable dating in crowded places, for example.
The British secretary responsible for vaccination programming, Nadhim Zahawi, gave his opinion on the initiative and described it as an “asset” for the local vaccination programme.

A survey by the research institute YouGov of about 5 adults in the UK showed that 28% of respondents said they would not date someone who was not vaccinated. Another 2% said they would not date someone who had received the vaccine.
In Brazil, some dating app users are using the hashtag #vacinado as a differential. But even with the apps initiative in the UK, there are concerns about the status of the vaccine and privacy within the country.
